Gratitude

Okay. So, I may have accidentally on purpose skipped last Monday’s blog post but what is a girl to do when she has writer’s block and wants nothing but sleep (and to watch constant reruns of Friends)? 

We live in a world whereby negativity is so easy to come by and if you allow it, it can consume each and every inch of that beautiful brain and body of yours. That is why, for today’s blog post I am going to list 5 things I am grateful for that have happened in the past week. No matter how little something may be, gratitude equals positivity which can only produce happiness and fulfilment in your life. No one likes a Mardy Bum so let’s crack on...

1. In the past week I left my crappy old gym (sorry totally not sorry) and joined a new one within yards of my workplace. I got that dreaded gym anxiety back going into a new, unfamiliar place but I am beyond grateful for my friends Becky and Lauren who have got my ass in the gym with them and have given me all the support and positivity I have needed. It has been amazing to have gym buddies (who are very motivational and hot af just for the record) for once and the girls may not know it but I am so grateful to have them in my lives as they are both full of energy and positivity... just what I need!

2. I am so grateful for my boyfriend who has given me nothing but love and a tonne of support this week (not that that’s out of the ordinary) and having those words of encouragement can make all the difference. I ended my week the best way possible by spending time with him and eating our body weight in Five Guys and Creams. He also puts up with my constant spamming of memes and tagging him in countless Facebook videos so he deserves a shoutout just for that alone really...

3. Good hair days. I know most of you are thinking ‘really?!’ But when you look good, you feel good and it’s all thanks to my fab little five pound curlers I got from Boots a couple weeks back. For me, if I make the effort to look good I always feel a million times more confident and a lot happier. 

4. My work friends. You tend to spend a minimum of 40 hours a week with your colleagues and it would suck if they’re all bitches but luckily mine are amazing. Whether we are gossiping about what we got up to at the weekend, mimicking the rude woman we just served, talking about dogs or debating matters of the world, there is never a dull moment with each of those girls having their own little quirks and great qualities they bring to the day and it’s safe to say they make work a whole lot better.

5. My bed. Netflix. Oh, and my bed once more. It may sound silly but we take everyday things for granted all the time when in matter of fact if you have a big cosy bed to crawl into after a long day and Netflix offering you thousands of shows and films to watch as you drift off to sleep then you are a very lucky individual. Getting all cosy in bed and watching Netflix is my down time and I love it. It’s my time to completely switch off from the world and chill and when you’ve been at the gym before the sun rises and working all day, it’s the perfect way to relax in the evening.

So, there we have it. My 5 things I am grateful for this week. There is a tonne of other things that I’m grateful for, of course, but these are the main 5 that have made my week that extra bit special and a lot better. It doesn’t matter how big or small something may seem, you can still show gratitude. Whatever you give out into the Universe, the Universe will give back to you. Send out positivity, kindness, love and gratitude. Think about 5 things you are grateful for for this past week, make note of all the good things, forget the bad and watch how your world changes.

Until next time...
